American Water announced that it has raised approximately $460,000 company-wide for local United Way organizations across the nation.
Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS) a manufacturer of high-density polyethylene pipe, is opening its largest U.S. manufacturing plant to help meet the growing demand for HDPE products in highway construction projects in the eastern U.S.
The $12 million, 68,000-square-foot facility opening in Gloucester County, N.J., will bring 100 new jobs to the area and will serve ADS customers in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
The plant, set to begin production in June, will produce HDPE pipe for use in the development of local and federal highway projects and will serve construction projects in agriculture, mining, forestry, recreation and civil-engineered underground drainage applications.
ADS chose Gloucester County for its strategic geographic location and access to a skilled labor market. ADS also will pursue future expansion opportunities for this facility based on the growing demand for its products.
